Heather Parry has a resume that would turn most people’s heads. She spent a dozen years working at MTV, and then a decade at Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison. With experience like that, it was natural for her to run Live Nation Productions, where she could combine her hard-won experience with film and music.
She began running the company on December 1, 2015. Since that time, she has brought to life films like Gaga: Five Foot Two; Believer; Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story; and Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis.
Believer, a film following Imagine Dragons lead singer Dan Reynolds, is one of Parry’s famed projects. Anyone could have recorded a concert for the band, but Live Nation Productions chose to go deeper, using the film as a chance to tell the story of Reynolds’ struggles with his faith as a Mormon since the church amplified its position against homosexual activity.
Believer stood out at the Sundance Film Festival where it was a runner-up for the festival favorite.
Prior to producing Believer, Parry had worked on Gaga: Five Foot Two. The beloved Netflix film won NME’s Best Music Film award.
These successes took Heather Parry on a natural route toward one of Live Nation Productions biggest releases, the Bradley Cooper directed A Star Is Born. The film stars Cooper and Lady Gaga. Since its USA release on October 5th, 2018, the movie has topped 100 million in earnings, and garnered an impressive eight Oscar nominations.
The movies Heather Parry has been working on with Live Nation Productions are a far cry from the standard concert film, and music fans couldn’t be happier about that.
